COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY UPDATE

All is going well in the Community Food Pantry, by which we mean that your donations of food and money are being put to very good use serving people who would otherwise struggle to put food on the table, cleaning products in the cupboard and toiletries in the bathroom.

Not only are you helping your immediate community, you’re also helping the people who visit the AidBox Community (ABC) hub. Through our partnership with them, we provide food and sanitary products for their free shop each week. There are always queues out of the door when we drop our weekly delivery in the hub, so it’s clear the need is as high as ever.

How can I help?

As well as cash donations, we are incredibly grateful for any food you can give. Any amount at all is helpful, even one packet, box or bottle of something! Here are the items we’re most in need of at the moment:

PLEASE DONATE:

Cooking oil

Tuna

Other tinned fish

Pasta

Rice

Tinned vegan meals

Tinned fruit

Corned beef

Sanitary towels

Deodorant

Shaving foam

Kitchen roll

Flour

Sugar

Coffee

Tea

Oatcakes

Jams and spreads

 

Please DO NOT donate:

Fresh food (we can’t safely store it and it will go to waste)

Pasta sauce

 

Where do I leave food donations?

Please put food donations either in the clear box labelled “Community Food Pantry Donation Box” at the back of the church or in the box outside the front door of the Presbytery.

How do I donate money?

There is a “Food Pantry” button on the Donation Point inside the church if you would like to make monetary donations by card. Or you can give cash to Mgr Massey or put it in an envelope through Jenny Glester’s door at 57 Egerton Road.
